How to print CPE+ on UM3


Recommended Posts

Posted · How to print CPE+ on UM3

Hi All,

I need print very strong parts from materials such as CPE+ or PC. I know that UM3 not support CPE+ and PC for this moment. But I have few questions.

1. Heating bed

How UM3 can provide 110deg celsia which is recomended for printing this materials, when my UM3 can make only 100C? I use DIY door for closing print chamber.

2.print core

When I try print (transparent CPE+) on AA core, I have many carbonize parts on final result. Support from Ultimaker means that for this materials will be release completely new print core for this materials?

If is only about trying find good settings for printing on current printcores I can try find him :)

3.Date of release new cores

are some information about releasing all new features for UM3? Printcores, Cura?

Thanks for reply

    Update firmware on printer.

    Last stable version of Cura.

    I am printing now with CPE+ (Ultimaker transparent) , 0.6 profile on Cura, an coach at HO scale (1:87).

    As soon as i finish i will upload photos.

    PS. My bed is at 109 degree Celsius, no door.

    The carbonized pieces you mentioned (Black Stuff in the print) is probably from the filament absorbing moisture. If you are using PVA for any reason, you may be picking some of that up as well.

    But as Gigi said, Latest firmware and software will make the printing more automatic since there are now presets that allow for these materials and their associated temps.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
